Greek Bouzouki Construction Blog
This is my Greek Bouzouki Construction Blog. I will be posting pictures and an explanation of how I design and make my instruments. I will also be covering other Greek bouzouki topics related to purchase, proper set up, and playing accessories. Please stop by often, and feel free to ask me any questions you may have.

Applying the binding to the capping strip

Glueing binding to capping strip 

After the capping stip is dry, sand the edges of the capping strip.  On better quality bouzoukis, a decorative binding is glued onto the edge.  It may be one binding strip of a contrasting color (to match the binding that will be used around the soundboard and along the fretboard) or a binding and purfling stripes.  The binding is glued in place and held on with tape.

Body with outside completed 

The outside of the body and the capping strip and binding is then scraped level and sanded, and the outside of the body is complete, except for any inlays.  Up to this point has taken me about 45 hours of work.
